    A lot to like there! I particularly liked the look of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles side scrolling best em up. Only time will tell if it can update Konami’s classic arcade game in the way SOR4 did for its respective series, but it’s got the Dotemu seal of approval so fingers crossed! It certainly looked the part, not only in style but the way the characters moved; the attacks looked and sounded really meaty and the combos look like good fun.

    Magic mushrooms, more like.
  6. I think I’ll now give myself a little push to finish Zero before it arrives, it seems I’ve only got 2 chapters remaining, so the timing is not bad.
  7. I don't agree! Ford and Mercedes probably aren't in direct competition because Ford sell cheaper, mass-market cars to average income earners while Mercedes sell expensive, high-performance cars to high income earners. Games consoles, on the other hand, are selling to people with about £300-500 in disposable cash. You might argue that Nintendo skews younger, but the Switch has proven Nintendo's universal appeal. I appreciate your point on streaming vs hand-held, but I don't see them as distinct in the context of the wider 'Enjoying Your Spare Time' industry that is mus
  8. Nintendo have cooperated with Microsoft by releasing Ori and Minecraft on Switch - but Nintendo get revenue from Switch software, so this is mutually beneficial. And this arrangement ensures gamer eyeballs and spare time invested in the Nintendo ecosystem. A streaming app to a competitor’s suite of software is a very different proposition. Nintendo could perhaps extract a percentage from MS for the privilege, although I’m not sure how that would work or why MS would be willing to share, but I think most importantly it’s opening the gate and encouraging Switch gamers to play in Micros
  9. Isn’t it a little bit weird that only certain high speed SSDs can be used to store PS5 games? It makes sense that there are requirements for playing games, but I don’t see why this should be the case for archiving, especially because HDDs offer significantly better value.
  10. Scoobysi is not wrong though - Nintendo and Microsoft are in direct competition for your time. Why would Ninty encourage behaviour that at best encourages their customers to play MS titles, potentially eating into their own sales?
  11. Goldeneye HD simultaneous release on Switch and Xbox (or we riot).

    Really? The recent Edge showcase described a day/night cycle, and certain events happening only at certain times of the day.
